War Department Document 948, a 1,054 page book listing awards and citations during the First World War with many brief descriptions of the incidences of bravery, with an alphabetical index. Not an ex-library book, but a rugged Govt. Printing Office volume that is still tightly bound, no hinge problems, but with some staining and fading of the covers and the spine is faded beyond readability. The spine ends are soft but only the top of the spine is starting to fray. Corners are a bit bumped. No DJ as issued. A first edition with no additional printings indicated. A previous owner's last name, Herron, and the word Personal are written on the front cover. An important reference work. Bookseller Inventory #
